Safer Internet Day!

On Wednesday 16th June, Castleview celebrated Safer Internet Day. 

The children across the school learnt the latest advice and tips, which involved creative planning from the teachers and digital leaders.  All the activities helped the children to think about how to have a safe and have a positive time online.

Here are some highlights:-

Alan Mackenzie Visit!

On Wednesday, our online safety advisor, Alan Mackenzie visited Year 5 and 6 to talk about current trends on social media and talked to our oldest pupils about ways to stay safe online under the theme of ‘Personality and Identity’.

Following this, on Wednesday evening, teachers received up to date professional development training. Online safety is a huge and important area. Whilst many of us did not grow up with technology, it is integral to the lives of our children. In school we have lots of lessons to teach the children about keeping safe online and it is important that you are aware of the risks and issues too.



‘Be Internet Legends’ (November 2020)

Castleview had its first ever live, online Assembly! Google and Parent Zone delivered an Online Safety assembly entitled ‘Be Internet Legends’ to all the children in Year 2 through to Year 6. The children learnt that to make the most of the internet, they need to make smart decisions. The assembly taught the children about the Legends’ pillars: to be Sharp, Alert, Secure, Kind and Brave. This was also an interactive experience as the class teachers were able to feedback responses to the live studio via the online chat. The theme of the assembly was to empower younger children to use the web safely and wisely, so they can be confident explorers of the online world.
